Yahoo's Vincent Goodwill: Real reason behind Ben Simmons' late scratch 

Post#1 » by jbent87 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 2:52 pm

Spike just posted this... take it as you will. Simmons apparently got an Uber back to Philly from NY when the team was supposed to stay there in quarantine.

I believe this restriction is tiring out the players.

Its not just Ben. Kyrie was reportedly out celebrating his sister and his dad’s birthday.

Kyrie is a creep though, with a reputation of insubordination and being a pain in the ass, for lack of a better description.

Ben is slowly becoming the same kind of player, seemingly.

He isn’t good enough to be pulling these type of stunts. Get Harden.

Like I said from the start. Injury was BS. It's the teams fault they are in this position playing undermaned.

Restrictions are tiring me out too, and I don't have millions of reasons to obey them, but I still do. Enough babying these guys.

So i listened to the Chris Haynes podcast where they got this report. Sounds to me some players think the league started too soon, not to their liking, after trying to make money for those Christmas games.

Im with u in that we should stop babying these guys. Atleast do it for the team.

P.S. i hate this restriction/lockdown SO BAD.

I’m struggling to understand the logic behind this report. If he misses the Denver game because of quarantine, why did he miss last night’s game, and then is probable for tonight’s game?

Can't wait to trade this primadonna, good riddance.
If we are to accept that the league is inevitably headed to this 3pt spam no defense contest, then we may as well do it properly, get Harden and win it all, even if we need to incur into a huge moral corruption (accept flopping, 3pt spamming and no defense as our philosophy), just do all it takes to win, Ben is just a loser.
